MaxL Crashes/Generates Empty Script When Encrypting a MaxL Script Not Working After applying Essbase Patch Set Update (PSU) (Doc ID 2175115.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2022

Applies to:

Hyperion Essbase - Version and later
Generic Windows


After applying the Essbase PSU, there are multiple issues when trying to encrypt a MaxL script depending on where MaxL is run from:

The following examples are from a Windows environment.  

MaxL run on the Essbase Server from the \Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\epmsystem1\EssbaseServer\essbaseserver1\bin directory:

Generate keys is successful:

startMaxl.bat -gk

Essbase MaxL Shell 64-bit - Release 11.1.2 (ESB11.
Copyright (c) 2000, 2016, Oracle and/or its affiliates.
All rights reserved.

Public Key for Encryption: <public key string>
Private Key for Decryption: <private key string>

MaxL Shell completed

When the command to encrypt the MaxL script is run, MaxL (essmsh) crashes and an empty script, file.mxls, is created: startMaxl.bat -E Test.mxl <public key string>

Running a previously encrypted MaxL script also crashes Maxl (essmsh): startmaxl.bat -D Test.mxls <public key string>

MaxL Run from a Client System, not on  Essbase Server  will not crash but generates an empty script, Text.mxls.



 Applied Essbase PSU.
